"Good - As an amateur restorer of furniture I needed a new set of chisels. These are robust enough to withstand heavy work, ready sharpened and appear to hold their sharpness well. Bad - I haven't found anything negative."
"Have only used these chisels for a couple of days but they are by far the best set I have used yet they perform with ease in every job they are needed and at a great value the only down side to the product is that they do not come with any case"
"Tools are only as good as the user... Me being a DIYer thought I would buy quality in stead of cheap and it has made a difference in the finished job. Excellent quality and a 99 year guarantee what more could I ask for. Very happy indeed :)"
"Bought this set as I had damaged my cheaper chisel. I decided to get a decent chisel set this time. This was the best decision I made, these work so much better than the previous one I had, stay sharper for longer. The old chisel was blunt after fitting one door latch box! This set is still as sharp as ever and decent quality after fitting a few new latch boxes. I will be looking after these ones for sure. Also got these when they were on offer so a decent purchase overall. I am only an amateur, doing home DIY and for a few pounds more has saved me hours of time!"
"Bought this set of chisels just for general work and at the price I paid knew that they would probably not be the best chisels you could buy. If you don't mind keeping them sharp they will be ok for most work on soft woods. You get what you pay for so these were good value."
"These chisels are described as 'pre-sharpened' and that was the attraction. The Irwin Marples website states the same. The ones I have purchased aren't, they are absolutely blunt. Will have to spend a few hours honing them instead of getting on with the job. Very disappointing."
